Mr. Pick­les

Ste­wart says the fran­tic pace of the first sea­son will let up just a bit in the sec­ond to give view­ers a chance to get to know some of the sup­port­ing char­ac­ters, like Sher­iff, and one episode will be com­pletely given over to the in-show TV se­ries As­tro­naut Dol­phin De­tec­tive. “A lot of our big­ger A stories this sea­son will fall around Sher­iff, who we get to know quite a bit more,” he say. “Sher­iff is be­com­ing a re­ally fun char­ac­ter ... He’s just kind of in­stant com­edy, so we’re hang­ing out with Sher­iff a lit­tle bit more.”

Which isn’t to say that there won’t be plenty to learn about Mr. Pick­les him­self as the sea­son pro­gresses. “We’re go­ing to be giv­ing a lit­tle bit more away as the sea­sons go as to Mr. Pick­les and his back­story,” says Ste­wart.

“We’re go­ing to slowly show lit­tle hints, so they won’t be in your face, but they’ve been there along the way,” says Car­sola. “You’d have to re­ally pay close at­ten­tion to ev­ery de­tail to pick up on that stuff. I think even­tu­ally down the line some­body could look back at sea­son one and say all those hints are there, but I don’t think that any­body could re­ally fig­ure it out.”

Ste­wart says each episode is writ­ten around ideas that make them laugh and the chal­lenge is find­ing the ideas that stick. “The only thing that we re­ally stay away from in Mr. Pick­les are re­li­gious jokes, be­cause the show isn’t re­ally about re­li­gion and re­li­gious jokes are easy,” says Ste­wart. “I guess you could say that Will and I like to make things time­less, so we never do cur­rent, top­i­cal things.” [ come true. “I am such a fan of video games in gen­eral, but in par­tic­u­lar this se­ries of video games, and I’m kind of a hor­ror nut,” he says. “To get to do some­thing that’s a lit­tle more ma­ture, a bit more gritty and to work with some of the most tal­ented an­i­ma­tors in town was just a dream come true and I’m su­per pleased with how it turned out.” [

Sher­rif and Mr. Pick­les come across the lat­est hor­ri­ble hap­pen­ings in Old Town.
